Update an old wreath or grab a new one to make this snowy, lighted Christmas wreath trio. All it takes is a few simple (and unexpected!) supplies.
This year we've really gotten a jump start on our Christmas decorating! I made this Christmas Wreath Trio and gave it a snowy twist. I bought simple, inexpensive wreaths, hobby wire, and some ribbon.
I used drywall texture to give my wreaths a snowy glow. Yes, drywall texture! It was quick to spray and dry to touch after 15 minutes. And best yet, it hasn't been too much of a mess.
To flock the wreaths, I used one can of drywall texture spray in the orange peel finish. You can find this in your local hardware store, mine was near the drywall supplies in the paint department.
I sprayed generously in a ventilated area on a tarp. The one can was plenty for the three wreaths! When spraying, focus on the tips of the greenery.
I was surprised at how quickly it dried to the touch, much faster than if I had tried spray paint, regular flocking, or any other textured paint.
Next, I added these battery operated LED lights. These are so fun at night! Look for one with a timer feature, these Martha Stewart Living ones stay 6 hours on, 18 hours off. In case you're like me and forget to turn lights off. 🙂
Here's another look at how it looks against our turquoise door. The snowy texture really makes the wreaths stand out!
